Whole Wheat Oat Pumpkin Muffins

Submitted by: GEMINIDREAM


Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 egg
    2/3 cup Splenda Granular or equivalent sweetener of your choice
    1 can (1 3/4 cups) pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    2/3 cup nonfat milk
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup oat flour
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a 12-serving muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray or line with paper baking cups and spray insides with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside. In a large bowl combine pumpkin, eggs, splenda, vanilla, milk and stir well. Sift in flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Fill prepared muffin cups equally, sprinkle tops with extra cinnamon. Bake 20 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Added note: if you can't find oat flour then try putting quick cook oats (not instant) in your blender and pulverizing, shaking, pulverizing, shaking the container until it all grinds down to a flour. Should work just fine! Also...be sure to spray your muffin pan or cups with nonstick spray or yes, they will stick.

    I don't usually like splenda recipes but this one turned out great...will definitely make again. I used 3/4 c. milk, and added 1/4 c. ground flax + 3/4 c. dried cranberries. I processed 3/4 c. oats to make 1/2 c. oat flour. Thanks for the recipe! - 12/16/08

    These turned out to be easy and tasty. I used my blender to make the oat flour from Quaker Oats (so much less expensive than buying it!) and it worked perfectly. I'm going to try sprinkling a tiny bit of chopped pecans and Splenda brown sugar on top next time. - 3/12/08

    Whole family likes these. I found I needed about 1 cup milk. added 1/2 cup craisins (dried cranberries) and 1/4 cup chopped pecans. Sprinkled tops with rolled oats. Made 56 mini muffins that contain only 27 calories each. (Making oat flour in blender worked fine.) - 10/20/08

    I have made 4 times since Thanksgiving. I have blended old fashioned oats OR used oat bran in place of the oat flour and both worked great. I used honey or agave nectar for the Splenda and cut the milk down by 1/2 and I always add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts AND 2/3 heaping Tbsp grd Flax. MOIST - 12/4/07

    Fantastic!! I did omit the Splenda as my children would be eating it. I just used 1/2 cup of brown sugar instead (will use less next time as they were still very sweet). I also used egg whites instead of an egg. Very moist muffin and will make this regularly. The kids loved them. - 11/23/07

    These were alright. Mine turned out mushy in the middle and moist on the bottom...maybe too much non stick spray? And they shurnk down after I took them out of the oven. The taste was very pumpkiny, but for those who don't like the taste of splenda, I couldn't taste it at all. - 10/29/09
